Wilkes-Barre Scranton - October 18, 2014 -

It was the WBS Penguins taking on the St. John’s IceCaps tonight as the WBS Penguins look to go 2 for 2 in the win column for the weekend. No the boys are not home they are on the road trying to better last night’s win and make it two. The IceCaps were looking to go 1 for 2 and redeem their home loss with a win.


The WBS Penguins were the first on the board tonight as Scott Wilson earned his first pro goal putting the Penguins ahead 1-0 at 2:59 of the first period Wilson’s goal came off of nice assists from Philip Samuelsson and Barry Goers.


It was just over 2 minutes later the Penguins would strike again as Nick Drazenovic would light the lamp for his first goal of the 14-15 season putting the WBS Penguins up 2-0. That is where the first period would end the Penguins looking at a two goal lead heading to the dressing room for the first intermission, but everyone knows that a two goal lead is a dangerous one.


The IceCaps J.C. Lipon would light the lamp just 4:09 into the second frame cutting the Penguins lead in half, putting a little pressure on the Penguins (remember what I said about a 2 goal lead being a dangerous lead), and giving his team a lift trying to turn the mojo in the IceCaps favor.


But as fate would have it that is where the second frame would end the WBS Penguins head off the ice for the second intermission just one goal ahead of the IceCaps and looking at 20 more minutes of hockey.


Third period action, the IceCaps were looking to even things up but just couldn’t find the right mix. The Penguins Bryan Rust netted the Penguins third goal beating Peter Budaj at 7:00 of the third period giving the Penguins that two goal buffer once again.

Then late in the third Penguins Zack Torquato who is on PTO here in WBS put the lid on the jar as he netted the Penguins fourth of the night with only 1:57 to play, an empty net goal at 18:03 insured the win for WBS.


WBS now finishes up its first road trip of the season on Tuesday night as they visit the Albany Devils at 7:00pm. Next WBS Pens home game is on Friday night, when they will meet the Springfield Falcons at 7:05pm.
